WASHINGTON, Jan. 7, 2014 – Farmers and ranchers who are interested in participating in the Conservation Stewardship Program (CSP) have another month to submit applications.
The USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) extended the deadline for new enrollments in CSP through Feb. 7, 2014. Now in its fifth year, producers have already enrolled more than 59 million acres.
“Extending the enrollment deadline will make it possible for more farmers, ranchers and forest landowners to apply for this important Farm Bill conservation program,” NRCS Chief Jason Weller said. “Through their conservation actions, these good stewards are ensuring that their operations are more productive and sustainable over the long run and CSP can help them take their operations to the next level of natural resource management.”
